The 2012 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual provides a step-by-step approach to applying the structural provisions of the 2012 International Building Code® and referenced standards. Volume 2 contains code application examples of light-frame, tilt-up and masonry construction. Diaphragm flexibility, center of mass, collectors and chords, deflection and anchorage are discussed through examples. In and out-of-plane seismic loads are analyzed.
Volume 2 includes sample structures of wood, cold-formed steel, tilt-up concrete and masonry, including:
- Four-Story Wood Light-Frame Hotel
- Cold-formed Steel Light-frame Three-story Apartment on Concrete Podium
- Tilt-up Building with Plan Irregularities
- Tilt-up Wall Building with Openings An excellent reference and study guide for the NCEES Structural Exam.
